  • Te Deum We praise you, O God


Te Deum
This great 5th century hymn of praise can look forbidding when presented as a long page of Latin plainchant. Most English versions are paraphrases and to be true to the text should reflect the shift in it from universal praise to hopes and fears for the future and trust in God.
